Ghosting and other display problems on new system build
Posted on 2006-05-04
I recently upgraded my system, after buing a video card, I noticed what I believe is called Ghosting but have also noticed a virticle line on left side of screen, as well as diagonaly moveing lines while playing 3D games.
I have the following setup:
Windows XP Pro SP2
Asus N6200/TD/128 (Nvidia Geforce 6200)
Asus P5VDC-MX Motherboard
Celeron D 336 2.8GHz CPU
Kingston 512MB DDR 400 (KVR400X64C3A/512) Memory
Maxtor 40GB Hard Drive (6E040L0)
AOC 17 Inch CRT Monitor (7E-SLK)
Thermaltake TR2-430W Power Suply, W0070
After contacting Asus, they sugest either faulty Power Supply or Bad Memory Card memory, I try a differnt computer/monitor and supply, same problem. I try reseating card, difernt refresh rates and resolutions. They told me to phone and get RMA, instead I phone store I bought from, since they have 15 day warenty with them. They take it in for testing and give me RMA form.
They email me today: Your card is working fine so far, can you provide us with your system specks or bring in your system.
I dont understand how they cannot see the problem or if they are only using software to test for problems they are not looking for. Maybe its just me but around the edges of windows and the cursor, I see multiples, that are faded out or transparent but quite disturbing.
What can you sugest?
